Whats needed

You should have fun helping other people, wear weatherproof (warm in winter) clothes, which can get dirty, and be in a good mood. You should have a social streak and be able to approach people with many different backgrounds openly and not be afraid of contact with them. For us it is also important that you see for yourself where help is needed, as there will not always be someone to explain everything to you.

German Skills

For this volunteering opportunity you don't need any German skills.

Other Things You Should Know

Important notice

Please note that every day and every shift is very individual and sometimes it can be a bit chaotic as our work depends on the available donations and volunteers. There will be no detailed introduction and not in every situation someone will tell you what to do, so it is important that you are willing to help proactively and you are not afraid to ask questions if something is unclear.

You can join at any time - i.e. at any point of the tour - and of course you can leave the tour at any stop. Please, just give us a little notice before you go.

Insurance
